CD ALMY 181 (released 2003) with Evelyn Thomas's High Energy also contained two mixes of Cut Glass.

I agree, it is also nice to see a nice soulful diva with a natural singing talent rather than some squeaky anorexic with only silicone talents.

didn't they also do the original version of Alive With Love?

badly covered by TINA FABRIQUE :wink:


here's IAN LEVINE talking about THE SAINT

The closing party lasted three days. I went with Ralph Tee and Stephen Wagner. It would’ve been ’88 I reckon. Easter ’88. Just as northern soul discovered the records of the sixties and played them in the seventies, so the Saint discovered the records of the seventies and played them in the eighties. They made Gods out of the cult disco records of the seventies. Cut Glass Without Your Love. $200 a copy for the 12-inch on 20th Century. Charlie Grappone, of Vinylmania in New York, used to have them on the wall; these priceless 12-inch things. There was no bigger record in the Saint than Cut Glass. Thea Barnes - JJ Barnes’ sister - was the lead singer. Mildred Scott who went on to do...

Prisoner Of Love?
That’s right. Both sides, Without Your Love and Alive With Love have been covered. It epitomised the Saint, because it was a disco record from the end of ’79, at the end of disco. It had not sold, it was very rare, yet both sides were massive at the Saint. People would come to Vinylmania on a Monday and they’d discuss and talk about, you know, ‘He shouldn’t have played that record after that record’. I saw people’s letters to these DJs: they were fanatical about the music. Religion grew out of these records.

There's also another mix done by almighty only found on 'Gay Anthems 2'.I like it the best out of all of them. I'm not too fond of the original. A little too slow for me.

It was sad to hear of the recent passing of the 'Ortheia Barnes' the lead singer of Cut Glass.
